2010 Yuletide Festival

2010 Yuletide Festival -

Lauren 'Budgeford' Salk has penned an informative look at the development of the new Yuletide Festival for Lord of the Rings Online. The team has completely overhauled the festival and created a brand new experience for players. Salk gives readers information about the lore behind the festival in addition to explaining the development process.

This festival looks different, feels different, and is different. It is not the usual event-in-a-box that we have been making again and again since my first festival, in which we introduced the Hedge Maze. This one is bigger, more immersive, and doesn’t just layer more content on top of the existing festival areas. It features a number of quests, a story, a moral choice at the end, and several mini-games all contained in a new wintry region.
